How secure is SubVersion at an ISP?

I have a server running SubVersion. But am having a terrible time getting a port open on ComCast, and am considering using a hosted version of SubVersion.

How secure is that? Can't anyone at the ISP get my source code?

Is the source code encrypted on the disk? Or could an employee of the ISP open the file?

I guess when I tried looking into the code on my SubVersion I found it was encrypted.

Am I right about that?
